Hitachi Ultrastar A7K1000 500GB

Recommended Posts

Just picked up one of these Hitachi Ultrastars from newegg, this was a replacement for two POS Seagate 7200.11 500 gigs I went though.

This drive is very quiet, has a 32 meg cache, seems very fast as Vista gives it a 5.9 score. I can't seem to find any reviews on it, it may be relatively new. Has an average latency of 4.17ms accoridng to newegg.

All in all I'm very happy with this drive.

the interesting thing is taht the 7k1000 is only listed with 750 and 1000gb

the question is if there are used 2 250gb platters or 200gb ones similar to the other capacitys

Did you had any other issues with the 7200.11's apart from noise?

Thanks.

Both HD's I went through had the wrong firmware on them. To many issues to deal with.
